Wow, I can’t believe I have passed the 1 year mark before mine and Kyle’s 2014 wedding! I’m pumped and so excited to get back into planning mode!
I kicked started the one year countdown by re-asking my friends to be my bridesmaids. I didn’t do anything fancy, except send out a mass email. However, I was a bit more thoughtful and creative the first time I asked my bridesmaids to be in the wedding.
A former colleague of mine (turned wedding planner) posted this idea to their blog (Will You Be My Bridesmaid). I fell in love with it, and wanted to do something just as thoughtful and meaningful for my friends.
So, a trip to Michaels® left me with this:
Inside of the box, I pasted a “Will You Be My Bridesmaid” printable I’d found on Wedding Chicks.
I also included important details and pictures to reference for their attire.
Not all of my bridesmaids received a box (I still have 3 that I’ve yet to mail out…I know HORRIBLE!) For them, I put together a simple card with the printable and reference information; which still had the same effect. My Bridesmaids loved their box and card, and thought the reference materials were (and still are) very helpful. 😕
Since then, there have been many variations as to how to ‘Ask the Girls’.
